Angie Cherry

Angie is the owner and an instructor at Body Bliss Yoga. She came to her mat in 2005 for healing, movement and balance in her life. What she learned through her practice was transformative and she was inspired to teach yoga to others. In 2012 she got certified to teach and through teaching, she hopes that others are able to experience a deeper connection with themselves and those they care about.

Her classes are creative, soulful and meant to be a haven for self-expression, curiosity and growth. She enjoys teaching to all levels and believes everyone needs yoga, every single day.

Angie teaches several classes per week and seasonal SUP yoga classes at Lacamas Lake.

Kristine Archer

Kristine was initially drawn to yoga purely for the physical benefits. As an avid runner she wanted the strength, flexibility and conditioning that yoga can offer. What she was not expecting was how much yoga would awaken her.

She continues to enjoy examining the mind body connection on her mat, in running and in life. She hopes to inspire her students to step out of their comfort zone and find their inner strength.

Kristine teaches Monday morning Detox Flow at 9:30AM, Bodysculpt on Wednesdays at 6:00PM and Stretch and Roll Wednesdays at 7:30PM.

Jenessa Stark

My yoga path began when a focus on journalism and multimedia in high school and college made the imminent stress of a desk job with deadlines unbearable. Yoga became a stress relieving personal practice. After years of balancing school with bar and restaurant jobs, I realized that while I enjoyed helping people enjoy themselves, I wanted to help them do so in the best way possible for their bodies and minds. Parallel to this were incidents of poor health in my family, which combined to spark an inner fire that burned for change. My journey in yoga and movement led me to The Lotus Seed, where I obtained the 200 hour RYT in 2013 with a focus on Iyengar/Hatha methods.

Jenessa teaches Thursday evening Vinyasa Flow at 6:00PM and Restorative at 7:30PM.

Mari Coryell

After a casual home yoga practice, Mari Coryell began classes soon after Body Bliss Yoga opened in Washougal in 2012. The next step to deepening her practice was to join their first yoga Teacher Training.

With an emphasis on helping people stay as active as possible, Mari’s light heart and gentle spirit will gratefully welcome all who wish to share the yoga path. She enjoys supporting people as they find time to breathe, relax and practice self care.

Mari believes that yoga can be a tool for healing and is currently studying for her 500 Hour Certification.

Mari teaches Restorative Yoga on Tuesdays at 7:30PM and Fridays at 6:00PM.

Tanis Morris

Tanis Morris has a passion for energetics, anatomy and inspiration. Her flows will challenge your body and your mind, but you will be having too much fun to notice.

Tanis weaves her knowledge of yoga, energetics and nutrition into all of her classes and she loves supporting her students as they become more aware of themselves and begin living a more intentional life.

Tanis has a love for life that’s apparent in everything she does. Her classes are joyful, supportive and always creative.

Tanis teaches Wednesday Vinyasa Flow at 9:30AM and Saturday Arm Balances and Inversions at 9:00AM.

Jacquie Michelle

Jacquie Michelle is a certified yoga instructor, holistic nutritional therapist and founder of Blooming Heart Wellness. She was first introduced to the idea of yoga at the age of 19 when a good friend gave her a book about conscious breathing and meditation. Later she found her way to the physical practice and immediately fell in love.

In 2013 Jacquie completed her first 200 hour training under the guidance of Marianne Wells. She recently completed a second 200 hour training through YogaMazé led by Rocky Heron and is working on her 500 Hour Certification. She finds joy in teaching both alignment based practices and flow.

Jacquie teaches Monday evening Hatha Flow at 7:30PM and Tuesday Yoga Fundamentals at 11:15AM.

Kelsey Keagle

Hello! I’m Kelsey Keagle, and I am a bright, charismatic and compassionate yoga instructor. Yoga has brought me to a path of self-healing, and I want to help others to feel the warmth and good vibes that yoga can bring you. I have a B.A. in Human Nutrition and graduated with a RYT-200 certification from the Yoga Bhoga Teacher Training (Portland, OR) in 2016. I connect with my students, meeting the individual where they are in their own practice.

My classes offer a balanced, thoughtful, and fun approach to yoga, interweaving philosophy with contemporary concepts and postures.

Kelsey teaches Thursday Flow Fundamentals at 11:15AM, Friday Vinyasa Flow at 9:30AM and Saturday Flow Fundamentals at 10:30AM.

Michelle Chamberlain-Burns

Although when you think of yoga, you may not think of all of the small tasks that allow for your studio classes to run smoothly and efficiently, there is some serious happenings behind the scenes.

Michelle works with Body Bliss as an assistant to Angie as well as keeper of the books. She is such an important and appreciated part of our studio and we just simply couldn’t live without her.

Michelle is a full time mommy and in her free time (which is pretty much never) she is studying tobecome an RYT 200 Hour Certified Instructor.

Carla Slocum

Carla has an undeniable passion for the outdoors, yoga and her Spyder. She loves adventure and is always up for trying something new.

In 2014, Carla took Fly High Yoga Teacher Training with Angie Cherry to enrich her yoga practice, not sure whether teaching yoga was something she wanted to pursue.

However, being able to combine her love for nature and yoga was something she just couldn’t pass up! In 2015, Carla received her WPA Certification along with her Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga Teaching Certification from Paddle into Fitness. She now teaches seasonal SUP Yoga classes through Body Bliss Yoga at Lacamas Lake.
